    See I told you I'd be shouted down!

    I had forgotten some of the old guard, I stand corrected on that score but, what I had said was the "new" crop.
    Just not my particular interest.

    For me it has to be:

    Bill Monroe, the Anthology CD and all the tracks from the late 1945-46 band.

    Flatt and Scruggs, Foggy Mountain Banjo and Foggy Mountain Jamboree.

    Jimmy Martin, The King of Bluegrass CD.

    Osbourne Brothers, The Bluegrass Collection CD.

    Jim and Jesse, Bluegrass & More.

    Kenny Baker, Frost on the Pumpkin.

    Bobby Hicks, Texas Crapshooter.

    Tony Rice, Guitar.

    JD Crowe, Rounder 0044.

    This is the sort of question that can't be "definitively" answered because there isn't really even a working definition for "What is Bluegrass?" That being said, I will take a stab at it anyway. These are not necessarily the first versions of a particular song, rather I have tried to pick important tunes played by important artists.

    Proto-bluegrass (Not really bluegrass, but important for showing the immediate precursors to bluegrass)
    Gid Tanner and the Skillet Lickers "Cotton Eyed Joe"
    Carter Family "Wildwood Flower"
    Jimmie Rodgers "Blue Yodel 1"
    Monroe Brothers "What Would You Give in Exchange for Your Soul"

    Bill Monroe and The Bluegrass Boys
    "Blue Moon of Kentucky"
    "Molly and Ten Brooks"
    "Roll In My Sweet Baby's Arms"
    "Uncle Pen"
    "Raw Hide"
    "Fire on the Mountain"
    "Blue Grass Stomp"
    "Blue Grass Breakdown"

    Flatt and Scruggs
    "Foggy Mountain Breakdown"
    "Old Salty Dog Blues"
    "Cripple Creek"
    "Ballad of Jed Clampett"

    Stanley Brothers
    "Man of Constant Sorrow"
    "Rabbit in a Log"
    "Somebody Touched Me"

    Jim and Jesse McReynolds
    "I'll Fly Away"
    "Ballad of Thunder Road"
    "Better Times a Coming"

    Osborne Brothers
    "Rocky Top"

    Jimmy Martin
    "Freeborn Man"
    "Will You Be Lovin' Another Man"

    New Kentucky Colonels (Live From Holland)
    "If You're Ever Gonna Love Me"
    "Workin' On A Building"

    Old And In The Way
    "Home Is Where The Heart Is"
    "Orange Blossom Special"

    Tony Rice (Manzanita and Bluegrass Guitar Collection)
    "Nine Pound Hammer"
    "Ginseng Sullivan"
    "Jerusalem Ridge"

    The Entire Album Will The Circle Be Unbroken by The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band
